A court order for a recount in the NPP Sunyani East primary has affirmed the victory of the incumbent Member of Parliament Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh.

The legislator remains the winner after a court recount Friday.

A Sunyani High Court that supervised the exercise after two hours of recounting agreed to the legitimacy of the incumbent who now polled 389 votes, compared to an initial 388 votes in the contest, while his opponent dropped by one vote.

Former Ghana Ambassador to Libya and High Commissioner to Nigeria in the Kufuor administration, George Kumi, challenged the outcome of the primary held June 13, 2015.
